BORCH Gallery & Editions was founded in Copenhagen in 1979 and over the years has established a solid reputation as one of the world’s leading producers and publishers of fine art prints.

 

The heart of BORCH Gallery & Editions is the Copenhagen printmaking studio. The printmaking, always done in-house, is a close collaborative process between the artists, founder and master printer Niels Borch Jensen, and his team of master printers. The collaborations often continue over many years, allowing the artists to build up a comprehensive body of printed work that explores the various aspects of the medium and ties in closely with their oeuvre. Since 1999, the print projects have been presented in BORCH Gallery in Berlin.

 

BORCH Editions’ print projects are part of renowned international contemporary art collections, both private and public, among them MoMA (New York), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Humlebæk), and Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

Ragnar Kjartansson’s first collaboration with us was actually his first encounter with the medium of printmaking and resulted in a s suite of twenty-five etchings and seven large-scale woodcuts. Each of the etchings in the ‘Repent’ series tells a different story from the artists daily life—at times poetic, at times comical, and sometimes pretty absurd. The woodcuts in the ‘Fire’ series depict graphic images of flames against a black background. The subject of fire—a universal symbol for the paradox of destruction and creation—runs like a red thread through Kjartansson’s work. His fascination for flames stems from his childhood. He said ‘As a child I loved to draw flames, I would draw houses and then put them on fire drawing flames in the windows. One could say that early on it was evident that I was either a psychopath or a romantic.’
